2019 Analysis and Review of Feed Enzymes Market by Product - Phytase, Carbohydrase, and Protease for 2019 - 2027

Key Growth Influencers - Feed Enzymes Market

Introduction of Feed Enzymes Targeting Ruminants for Improved Milk Production

Feed is one of the most significant cost factors in the dairy industry. As a result, improved efficiency of converting feed into milk will boost returns for dairy farmers. Conventionally, feed enzymes that result in increased uptake of nutrients prominently targeted swine and poultry.

However, market players are introducing feed enzymes to improve efficiency and milk production of ruminants, which benefits farmers with dairy cows by cutting down feed cost. Such feed enzymes are anticipated to gain popularity among stakeholders in the dairy industry.

Rising Acceptance as Key Growth Promoters in Feed Industry

Controversies continue to surround the usage of antibiotics as growth promoters for animals. Although antibiotics have been used conventionally at therapeutic levels to enable animals to fight microbial infections and consequently deliver improved performance and productivity, the concerns centered around their negative impact on the entire food chain prevail. The EU has already imposed a ban on the usage of antibiotics as growth promoters in the animal feed industry.

This has prompted farmers and breeders to look for alternative solutions that improve performance of their animals, while reducing environmental impact, and protecting their profit margins. Feed enzymes have a positive effect on the nutritional intake, digestibility of feed and production capacities of animals. The industry has been reflecting strong acceptance for feed enzymes since the recent past.

Market Leaders Targeting Specialized Feed Enzymes

Players in the feed enzymes market are now targeting evolving supplement demands of different animals by offering specialized feed enzymes. Key players in feed enzymes market are focusing on individual categories, including poultry, cattle, canines, or equines, and are launching feed enzymes that offer optimum results.

Additionally, manufacturers focus on increasing thermo-stability, effective delivery, and higher efficacy of feed enzymes. This would remain a strong factor stimulating feed enzyme sales in the near future.
